Contemplating upgrading. Here is what i am looking at. If you have any suggestions, or opinions, or anything, please let me know. I would love to get some feedback on this.

VT forged shortblock (-17cc pistons)
VT stage 2 heads (220/195)
VT turbo cams (have yet to come up with any specifics though)
VT billet oil pump gears
ARP head studs
Pro-M 3.5" universal MAF (blow-thru)
HKS SSQV w/ 65mm steel flange
PI Torque Converter (thinking 2800 stall)
Diablo chip and custom tune by Xtreme motorsports (12lbs of boost for now)

Going on the motor (already have):
T64 turbonetics ceramic roller bearing turbo w/ .81 A/R
03 cobra tank and pumps
TurboXS Manual Boost Controller
Stock intake (for now) - would be happy to test any new intakes (for a free intake of course :D )

Not sure of a power level to expect, but i'm hoping for ~450-500

Sounds like a killer setup. Major power. Go ahead and get a Kenne Belle Boost A Pump.

You think the KB BAP is needed at the 450-500 hp level? What about injectors? 42's should be sufficient, right?

Sounds nice! What about just the shortblock and the local build you were talking about before?

VT's stage 2 heads flow 220 intake/195 exhaust, probably should have included that :)

I priced everything out, and it is just about as cheap to go with the VT setup than to do anything local, and it is just easier to go with VT. I've only heard great things about VT, which isn't the case about most places around here.
